Coinbase Earn Now Available in Over 100 Countries To The Public
Coinbase has opened its Coinbase Earn program to the public in over 100 countries.
Coinbase first announced the program at the end of 2018 as an invite-only initiative. This pilot period let users earn cryptocurrency by learning about the ERC-20 token “0x” (ZRX). Coinbase stated that according to a survey they conducted, uninformed users were reluctant to invest in crypto but were eager to learn:
“…one of the biggest barriers preventing people from exploring a new digital asset was a lack of knowledge about that asset. Many of the people we surveyed expressed a strong desire to begin learning about new and different crypto assets beyond Bitcoin, but didn’t know where to begin.”
Coinbase Earn users can earn crypto. In return for taking quizzes about Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC) and Basic Attention Token (BAT), users can earn those respective coins.
The platform commented on its hopes for USDC to provide economic stability in these newly covered countries:
“For new customers in countries like Argentina and Uzbekistan, where consumer prices are expected to inflate by 10–20% in 2020, stablecoins like USDC could provide an opportunity to protect against inflation.”
